A naturalist describes his eight years living with and studying a group of Alaskan wild grizzlies

Blackwell North Amer

In the tradition of the works of Dian Fossey and Jane Goodall, Timothy Treadwell offers an extraordinary account of the eight summers he spent alone with a pack of wild grizzlies along a remote stretch of the Alaskan coastline.

After a misspent youth of drugs, alcohol, petty crime and brushes with suicide, Timothy Treadwell encountered some grizzly bears while tramping through the Alaskan outback one summer. In the eight years since, he has immersed himself in the society of these rare and fascinating animals, observing their culture, photo-graphing their antics and ever so gradually earning their trust. Crammed with little-known bear lore and facts, much of which Treadwell has gleaned from his own research, this is the first book to reveal the day-to-day behavior of bears in the wild. But it is more than an illuminating study of grizzlies. The young author's intimate association with these noble and complex creatures has inspired him to put his own life in order, and his personal story makes Among Grizzlies an exceptionally poignant and exhilarating reading experience.
